Menopause Centre

Find out how menopause may affect your life and what the Canberra Menopause Centre can do for you.

Based at SHFPACT, the Canberra Menopause Centre is a dedicated service for those seeking information, support and medical management of menopause symptoms. Menopause is the stage of life when periods cease. This occurs when the ovaries are no longer producing eggs, and is a natural life event. Menopause has three stages: perimenopause, menopause and post-menopause.

Multicultural Menopause

SHFPACT, together with CarersACT, produced a Menopause Brochure in Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and Tongan, as well as PowerPoint presentations in the five community languages.

Menopause is a normal episode in a woman's life, which all women encounter in middle age. Many women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, however, often find it difficult to access information and health support services in a way that is appropriate for them. SHFPACT and CarersACT applied jointly to the Health Promotions Grants (Healthpact) to develop high quality information products and presentations in five community languages.

The project, which involved staff from SHFPACT's Menopause Centre, SHFPACT's Professional & Community Education Program, as well as translators from CarersACT, produced five fabulous brochures, and presented Menopause Information Workshops in community languages to carer groups from CarersACT's "Caring Across Communities" program.

Brochures are available from from SHFPACT. Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 02 6247 3077 to place your order
